Materials management is one of the important activities of business. There is no general agreement about precisely what activities are embraced by materials management. Some managers would associate materials management with their material or production control departments, which schedule materials requirements and may also control inventories of both raw materials and in-process materials. Others would associate it with the activities of their purchasing departments in dealing with outside suppliers.
